NO-DEAL BREXIT AFFECT ON IMMIGRATION SYSTEM
Given raising governmental support for a vote of no confidence against Theresa May ensuing her draft-Brexit deal recently, which caused the resignation of many important ministers including Dominic Raab the then Brexit Secretary, we have measured prior statements made in connection to EU residents in terms of the effect to their right to reside in the UK in occasion of a no-deal Brexit.
Pledges have been raised from the Home Office that, in a no-deal situation, the UK will honour pledges made to EU nationals and their family members resident in the UK by 29 March 2019. Though, promises have not been made in relation to EU nationals coming to the UK from 29 March.
In the episode if a no-deal Brexit, the Rules leading EU nationals residing or pursuing residence in the UK will fall under domestic UK law, which of course can be varied. Meaning if a deal is not decided, the UK Government will have the capability to announce new Immigration Rules straightaway.
EU nationals currently in the UK by 29 March 2019 should have the capability to apply for indefinite leave to remain if they are eligible or limited leave to remain under the EU Settled Status Scheme and Pre-Settled Status Scheme.
For those arriving to UK post-29 March 2019, the Government could announce a harsher set of regulations. Nevertheless, they will be required to distinguish between those EU nationals arriving before and after 29 March 2019 as they have offered EU migrants living in the UK until December 2020 to apply for Settled or Pre-Settled Status.
